Oh, Speedway, my friend, my buddy, my pal, what are you up to? Yesterday’s breakout to $3.09 was the fourth price hike in a week, but this one seems suspect. Did you panic when you read yesterday morning’s report from the Department of Energy? NYMEX traders didn’t, and prices there ended the day pretty much where they started. The averaging of the RU/HB prices has been a good predictor for three months now, and it could understand a hike to $3.02, but $3.09? What’s up with that? I see this morning that a few of your stations are back to $2.99, and I predict prices will be below $3 everwhere in the area by Independence Day. On July 4, prices were ranging from $2.85 to $2.99 just about everywhere, except for some parts of Ada and Wyoming, best I can tell. Perhaps I am being generous, but I am going to score this prediction as CORRECT.

The name of the site is based off an essay Ed wrote for the Grand Rapids Press titled "The Gas Game". The current website was established later by Patrick DeHaan after he and Ed predicted gas price hikes on GasBuddy's website GrandRapidsGasPrices.com, as well as Ed’s personal web page.
Note: To be precise, add 9/10 of a cent to all prices described on this web page.
